LEAD Clermont Introduces Class of 2020

Union Township, Clermont County, Ohio – Representatives from 26 Clermont County business, education, healthcare, government, social service and nonprofit organizations will participate in the LEAD Clermont Classic Class of 2020, which recently kicked off its leadership development
